“talis est vita”….Such is life

Just another day

I am fiery and I  am flawed!

For 22 years I have had a career in the fire service. A career that has exposed me to alot. I recently retired as a Battalion Chief 3 years shy of when I was planning to. I was the first and only female BC on my department. That came with some unique challenges. I worked with some great and some not-so great people.

I’m a bit of a scatter brain these days and do some goofy shit. I have no shame in sharing this reality. And you will find no fake news here.

I started this blog several years ago as a sort of “self-care” for myself. At that time I was experiencing major indifference or apathy, as some call it.

As a way to try and curtail my desire to run like hell or worse, I decided to get back to journaling, which was something I used on and off for years to try and minimize my Post Traumatic Stress.

I have always found strength in sharing some of the things I deal with and go through. I feel that alot of people benefit from knowing that they are not alone. I certainly do.

Along with being a retired firefighter, I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend. I recently went from a Battlion Chief on a fire department to a stay-at-home mom. It wasn’t planned but it became necessary for me and for my family. And for the men and women I worked with.

This blog began for my sanity but now will be used to share alot of fun and interesting stories that you might be able to relate to. Most of my writing is “light-hearted” with a side of “sarcastic”. The serious stuff will be an obviously different tone. So read accordingly.

Hopefully it will bring a smile to your face or you can relate. If you feel like you could use some realism mixed with a dash of sarcasm please feel free to follow and share my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
